This capsicum is pesticide and chemical free.
As the world is going gaga over coloured foods, capsicums or bell peppers remain the favourite of all healthy eaters. Red, green, yellow or orange, they all are essentially just green capsicums that have been allowed to ripen.
Green Capsicums are harvested before they are fully ripe and then continue to initially turn yellow and then red if they are left on the plant to mature. They are slightly bitter in taste and crunchy in texture and they never have the sweet aftertaste like red, yellow and orange ones, but they are sure to add a punch to every dish.
They are low in calories and exceptionally rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants, making them an excellent addition to a healthy diet.
Some benefits of capsicum are:
· Capsicums are an excellent source of vitamin A and C
· They are also a good source of dietary fibre, vitamin E, B6 and folate.
· The sweetness of capsicums is due to their natural sugars (green capsicums have less sugar than red capsicums).
· Capsicum improves digestion by increasing stomach secretions. It increases metabolism to burn a measurable number of calories at a higher rate. Capsicum reduces high blood pressure, protects against some types of cancer and is useful in the treatment of chronic rhinitis. Capsicum has been used in folk remedies to treat everything from impotence to liver disease. Loaded with vitamins A, C and beta carotene, peppers are naturally low in fat, calories and cholesterol.
